Cities are usually known only for their icons, monuments and 'top 10' tourist attractions. In 52 suburbs around the world, photographer Louise Hawson ignores the postcard clichés, finding beauty in the places where ordinary people live. Her vibrant photographs turn the ordinary into extraordinary, capturing not only the differences between countries and cultures but also the remarkable similarities. 52 suburbs around the world is a travelling exhibition from Sydney Living Museums. The exhibition is supported by Momento.
